Welcome to 6th Grade Science!
Science Rules!! We Have learned about water (H2O) quality; testing and conservation, and lots about energy. Currently, we are studying chemistry and will move into weather and space... the Universal kind.
We are half-way through the course and I hope that there are lots of interesting, scientific discussions happening at the dining room table!
During the entire semester we study the scientific method, as it pertains to answering an unknown question. We practice our skills in: Observation, Inquiry (the question/ what do we want to learn about a topic), Hypothesis, Research, Experiment, Data, Analysis and Conclusion. These can be tough concepts for kids. Please talk to your child to see what he/she is learning
Thank you for your continued support of your child and our school!
